The club's top mound prospect is with the team for developmental purposes only, as Rutledge has yet to pitch above Low-A as a pro. The 2019 first-round pick was impressive last year, posting a 2.30 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB in 27.1 innings for Low-A Hagerstown, but even if Nats coaches like what they see from him during the upcoming campaign, Rutledge isn't likely to make his big-league debut until at least 2021.
